Benefits of Acupuncture

In a world where our lives are increasingly busy and pressured, acupuncture offers a gentle, drug free, yet powerful way to support our health and well-being.


It's one of the most popular forms of complementary medicine in the UK, proving effective for all types of problems from physical pain to mental stress.

Acupuncture promotes the body's self-healing to bring about balance.  Not only do specific symptoms improve, we also feel at home within ourselves and are more able to overcome life's challenges to live fully.



Safe and Effective

As a member of the British Acupuncture Council I adhere to their Codes of Safe Practice and Professional conduct. I am registered with the Professional Standards Authority.

Acupuncture has been practised in China and the Far East for thousands of years. It's been developed, tested, researched and refined over this time.  Evidence-based clinical research continues to discover how the body responds to acupuncture and its benefits for a wide range of common health conditions. 

Conditions Treated

Very often people seek acupuncture because they're in some form of pain (physical or emotional) or have a on-going health complaint that hasn't responded well to Western medicine.  Or they might have no obvious diagnosis but just don't feel 'right', perhaps they are stressed, overwhelmed and want support to feel better, more in balance and more like themselves.   


I regularly treat many specific conditions such as musculoskeletal issues, headaches, chronic fatigue including Long COVID, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, skin conditions, sleep issues and more.  My particular interests in are mental and emotional health and women’s health.
